In the Philippines, one of the crucial traditional values is that, a woman should marry first before ‘jumping into the bed’ with a man. The conservative psyche of the elderly strongly prescribes this kind of ‘delicadeza’. However, we know that times change and that values seemed to be carried away with it. Relatively, Filipinas of today are more liberated than the Filipinas before. This does not mean that Filipinas have shifted away from the traditional values, it is that influence of other countries many have taken over. And celebrities are no exception to this new trend. Let us check who these seven Filipina celebrities are!
One of the stars who grew up in the showbiz industry is Camille Prats. She started as this very cute little girl who went acting with the biggest stars of the 80s-90s. Having said that, Camille has really imbibed the culture of the industry and is very open with her relationships. In 2007, Camille proudly announced on National TV that she is indeed pregnant with her longtime boyfriend Anthony Linsangan. She was 22 then and he was 27. Camille said that the pregnancy was unplanned, but she never was regretful about it. Upon learning about the pregnancy, the two decided to just delay the wedding until the baby came out to avoid stress; the wedding happened in 2008. They named their baby Nathan. Their love story was only short-lived, because in 2011 Anthony sadly passed away because of nasopharyngeal cancer. Now, Camille is happily in a relationship with VJ Yambao and they are set to tie the knot in 2017.
